Looking for a perfectly rich, chocolately, peanut buttery, protein packed bite that’s not overly sweet?  Look no further!!!!  These ‘truffles’ (A.K.A protein balls) offer the best of both sweet & savory all rolled into one!  They are a breeze to make, take very few ingredients, hardly any effort, and you can nibble on them anytime you need to tame a sweet tooth.  Since I tend to snack a LOT throughout the day and usually on things like crackers, bites of sweets here and there, pretzels, finger dips of peanut butter (you should see the pokes in my nut butter collection as well as the sides being swept clean), I figured it made much more sense for me to create a snack that was a little more nutrient dense and offered more protein.  I was thinking that I might even feel a bit more satiated as well which would prevent all of the extra nibbles I take, all day long.

I was right on target with these guys!  They tasted amazing and I absolutely LOVE the mix of flavors and textures they have!  What’s even better is that I was able to enjoy them over the course of a couple of days because they stored well in the fridge.  The pretzel on top doesn’t stay quite as crisp, but it was an easy fix to remove it and stick it back in when it was time for a bite!
